The texture after rehydrating isn't so good I would serve this on it's own. I find keeping this mix around is great when you want to make 7 layer dip or use refried beans in burritos, tacos or enchiladas. It's a great way to use that big bag of dried beans as well!


  1. In a coffee grinder, food mill or blender, grind beans until a flour consistency. Combine all ingredients and store jar or ziploc bag.
  2. To Use:.
  3. 3/4 cup mix.
  4. 2-1/2 cups boiling water.
  5. Mix with a wire whisk until combined. Bring to boil, cover, reduce heat to low and simmer for 4-5 minutes or until thickened. Mixture will thicken more as it cools. Refried beans will remain thickened even when reheating. You can add salsa or chopped chili peppers for added zip.
